750pts High Elves for Thursday

Playing 750pt games this Thursday mainly to get a few of the newer club members involved, and also because I am going to sneak away from work and get in a 2250 pt game during the day as well (so won't be missing out too much). Will be sticking with my High Elves and going with:

Noble
- Barded Steed, Dragon Armour, Shield, Lance, Helm of Fortune
Archers x10
Dragon Princes x5
- Champion
Dragon Princes x5
- Champion
Silver Helms x7
- Shields

TOTAL 749 pts

List should surprise a few people as I tend to be a bit conservative with things, but Ill also pack along the following infantry heavy list depending upon my opponent.

Noble
- Armour of Caledor, GW
Archers x10
Swordmasters x6
Swordmasters x6
Swordmasters x6
Phoenix Guard x16
- Champion

TOTAL 750 pts

Have dropped standards in both lists to remove any extra VP, which might or might not be a mistake.

I love the flexibility of the High Elves to do that; all-Cavalry or all infantry, deadly either way, or a nice mix. They are so flexible that they must be one of the funnest armies to play. Good times.

They are good, were much better (in some ways) in 6th Edition when Silver Helms were a core and NOT a special choice. Meant you could run an all cavalry army cheaply at 1000-2000pts

that is one of the frustrating things about Warhammer...you find an Army you love, love, love...then they change it so you can't play it. (See "Drew, Hordes of Chaos to Warriors of Chaos).
